Our only named beer to date. Its' honorary status is in tribute to its' designer, Allen Rhoades, a fellow brewer who captured a blue ribbon at the Western Washington State Fair when it was entered as a homebrew. It's everything a stout should be. Rich and hearty, not thick and overpowering, comes complete with a creamy head. Chocolate and crystal malts along with roasted barley combine to create the wonderful flavor. Compliments deserts well: try one in place of a cup of coffee.

What Chuck said on appearance, it needs lacing to get a 5. The aroma is pretty much the same, although I get a huge cocoa aroma too. The flavor is very chocolatey and roasted, dry roasted malt. The palate is lightly bitter and dry, medium full mf.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Pours a thick dark black w/ some carb bubbles and a nice frothy tan head. Smells largely of roasted malt and a touch of carmel.. a little dark fruit but not much. Palate is sticky well coated creamy and good w/ a nice carbonation. Flavor is a nice roasted malt a hint of bitterness bitterness a touch of sweet in the first tongue touch. A very basic taste but done well.

(bottle) Medium body. Tastes like roated malt and caramel, slightly bitter but balanced by a fruity sweet smell. Thanks CaptainCougar!

Bottle: Opaque, dark brown edges, large light brown foamy head, sticky lacing.   Roasted malt, apple/pear skin in the nose.   Fairly sweet roasted malt flavor, soft fig/raisin, a bit of apple/pear skin.   Low IBUs.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Roasty finish, lingering fruity notes.   Not light, but not big, but otherwise very enjoyable.   Thanks Mr Dick!

auerbrau (3191) - Ithaca, New York, USA - APR 27, 2005
Murky brown pour, with bubbling carbonation and topped with a thin light brown head. Strong quality wafts of rich dark bread, roasted chocolate, nuts and coffee. Front end of the flavor profile is weak, but blossoms into a fantastic smoky and oaken finish. A light hoppy bitterness on the front end. Aftertaste is a sweet chicory and hazelnut smack, with a good dose of sugar. Palate is highly drinkable with a very smooth rich water quality, backed with a nose of chocolate.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2005
On tap at brewery. Not a lot of head but a big mean black beer. Big roasted nose with licorice and charcoal. Slight sweetness from chocolate, slight bitterness to balance. Oily and full on the tongue. Enough of an alcohol burn to add some needed warmth (esp. in Ashland!). Their best beer on this day.

Suttree (5644) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2005
Black, brownish head. Thick and full bodied, with an aroma of chocolate and butterscotch (in a good way). Smooth and filling, with a flinty, coffee flavor up front. smooth, latte -like finish. Very enjoyable. Thanks to Jewedekind for the trade!

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 10, 2005
A black beer with a fluffy light brown head. Roasted malt aroma with creamy notes. Roasted and grassy flavor with creamy notes. OK, but little unbalanced.

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - APR 8, 2005
Beer pours black with a tan colored head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is pretty nice with coffee and lots of roastiness. Flavor is a bit thin compared to the aroma. Light flavors of coffee. The finish comes late but is big on roasted flavors. Finishes well. Not the greatest stout ever, but one I would be really happy to buy if it was brewed down the street from me here in Texas. Thanks Tom!!! Improves as it warms.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Pours a rich oily opaque with a thin tan head. Aroma is lightly caramely sweet and very roasty with hints of dark fruit complexity. Body starts robust and silky with a nice malty sweetness before a bittersweet, mildly dry, roasted finish. Very nice for a regular stout. A little more malt and this could be imperial.
